A few of Missouri’s crops are starting to break through the soil.
In the last week, USDA says 2% of Missouri’s soybean are emerged and 16% of the state’s soybeans are planted. That compares to 5% planted the previous week.
Corn planting nearly doubled in the last seven days, now shy of 60% complete. USDA says that’s well above average for this time of the year and 11% of Missouri’s corn is emerged.
